Moseley Old Hall (Moseley)

Moseley Old Hall is a historic house at Moseley, near Wolverhampton in Staffordshire.

This timber framed house was built in the 16th century, and was encased in brick in 1870, while retaining the original interiors.

In this house, the future Charles II took shelter in 1651, after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester, having first hidden at Boscobel, with its Royal Oak.

From Moseley, dressed as a servant, he made his way to Bristol, then on to Shoreham and eventually to France.

The house has an exhibition retelling the story of Charles` dramatic escape.

The garden has been recreated in 17th century style, using only plants that were available at the time.

Moseley Old Hall is in the care of the National Trust.
